Crystal Catwalk

The Daniel Swarovski Crystal Eyewear Collection was part of two select runway presentations during New York Fashion Week—that of heiress and famed American designer Pamella Devos of Pamella Rolland and rising couturier Farah Angsana.

Pamella Roland’s Spring ’09 show unveiled an elegant collection of silk suiting, chiffon gowns and colorful tulle dresses sparkling with sequins, pearls and crystals, making it a perfect fit for the new Swarovski Supernature and Special Edition Collections.

Spice Girl, Mel B (bottom) sported a pair of Special Edition shades in the front row of the show. “These are gorgeous and the right fit for my face,” she said. “And would you believe I forgot sunglasses on this trip… how perfect.” VIP guests later adjourned to a private after-party aboard the Devos family yacht, an event co-hosted by Swarovski eyewear.

Farah Angsana Couture runway presentation included numerous cocktail dresses and evening gowns. Her classically cut dresses were taken to the next level with the addition of glittering frames from the Swarovski Avenues of Light Collection. Last year’s “America’s Next Top Model” winner, Jaslene Gonzalez glowed in a green Grecian cocktail dress paired with matching sunglasses.
